How did I ever do this?

I haven't posted any new fics in a while. Part of it has been lack of time, due to the holidays and to other activities taking up my week. Though I learned my lesson last season and don't have three different rehearsals and classes eating up my weekday nights, I do have two rehearsals through the end of February and I'm enrolled in an online class and falling further and further behind. I'm hoping to catch up this weekend.

Thing is, I look at my posted works on AO3 and I wonder to myself, how did I ever write this much? At this moment, I can't conceive of writing of 50k multi-chapter. It's like a totally different person wrote all that stuff. Maybe I died and regenerated into a goomba, wandering back and forth between two walls and staring mournfully out of the screen.

On the other hand, I am actually working on two fics - one Blue Rain and the other Good Omens - and I've gotten 4k words down over the course of about six weeks. Most of it's on the BR fic, but every night I add a bit more and wonder, when is this thing ever going to end? It just seems to keep getting longer and longer. I do have a plot and a roadmap, but it's taking far longer to travel the distance than I anticipated.

Ah well. At least I'm accomplishing something.
